Custom-built laboratories at the heart of France's leading biocluster in Évry-Courcouronnes, south of Paris.

The Genopole ecosystem

A world-renowned biocluster, Genopole® brings together biotech companies, start-ups, academic laboratories (CEA, Inserm, etc.) and cutting-edge technology platforms.

Thanks to its international reputation, Genopole® contributes to the development of innovative therapies and the bioeconomy.

The GenoLife laboratories project is fully in line with the strategy of the National Health Innovation Plan 2030 and has been developed in partnership with local stakeholders: SEM Genopole, Genopole, Grand Paris Sud and Evry-Courcouronnes town council.

It will provide a new dynamic for the area and complement its real estate offering. More specifically, it supports the overall development of the biocluster by adding a new stage to the residential pathway offered to companies.

Genopole in figures

  • More than 100,000 m² spread over 5 campuses, offering a range of real estate adapted to the level of maturity of companies, from business incubators to industrialisation.
  • 2,800 jobs
  • 65 biotech companies
  • 17 academic research laboratories
  • 24 technology platforms
  • Partnership with the University of Evry, an associate member of Université Paris-Saclay, and the CHSF hospital (Centre Hospitalier Sud Francilien)

Technical facilities that are 100% adaptable and scalable

GenoLife offers 21,000m2 of space dedicated to research and innovation. It meets the growth needs of biotech companies looking for collaborative, functional workspaces to develop their R&D, bioproduction and testing activities.

The project, designed by Patriarche, adapts to constantly evolving technologies and is based on a concept of customised workstations to meet the needs of its users, including those with high technical challenges (such as L3 laboratories or GMP areas).

More specifically, the aim was to create a building that could be easily modulated to accommodate offices and/or laboratories, and that could be reversed as and when required, depending on the pace of development of each user. To achieve this, the project relies on rational spaces, with a minimum of structural constraints, and allows for great flexibility for adapting the interior fittings according to the type of activity carried out (R&D, pilot line, testing, etc.).

It also offers a working environment conducive to exchange and the emergence of innovations. The emphasis is on the well-being of future users, with a design that encourages an abundance of natural light. The building's facilities are varied, offering areas where people can meet and exchange ideas, shared meeting rooms and 'workshop'-type areas that complement the laboratory floors.

Users will also be able to take advantage of the services available in the project's neighbouring buildings, including a nursery, an inter-company restaurant and a car park.

An adapted architectural and technical concept

Rectangular shapes are the most flexible for creating a functional laboratory project. The typical platform is made up of two 9m bays, allowing you to create a choice of:

  • two rows of laboratories (with/without airlocks) served by a central corridor,
  • or spaces in the centre of the platform with peripheral circulation.

The overloads taken into account on the shelves are 500 kg/m².

The flows are well separated:

  • Each platform can be easily reached by a goods lift, accessible from a logistics area at the foot of the building;
  • Staff use the lifts from the ground floor lobbies.
Scalable laboratories

The laboratories are designed on the basis of a 60m² module, which can be partitioned for process and confidentiality reasons, or left open to create large collaborative spaces. These partitions can be upgraded over time.

On the technical platform, there is a clear height of 3.90m, with no overhanging beams, facilitating the horizontal distribution of air handling equipment from the large technical ducts located at the ends of each zone.

Made-to-measure design

The design teams can work with users from the programming phase through to completion of the works, taking into account the specific features of their activities.

Environmental performance

Its bioclimatic design will enable it to achieve Very Good BREEAM certification, illustrating Patriarche's approach to developing increasingly responsible solutions.

Cube project
A bioproduction building 500 metres from Genopole.

The Cube project is part of the Grand Paris Sud region's business pathway.
Thanks to its proximity to the historic Genopole site, a biocluster dedicated to biotechnologies, the project aims to support the industrial development of the area.

Cube offers additional rental space for companies in the biomanufacturing sector, either as a pilot facility for existing companies or as a production site for innovative projects.

This offer will enable them, in a short space of time, to install a production facility that meets GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) criteria and to move from the "research and development" stage to the "production" stage with a building ready to be fitted out according to their wishes.
The aim is to secure the long-term future of high-performance, innovative companies in the Evry-Courcouronnes area, which has been awarded the Territoire d'Industrie label.
